Toy­ota’s en­try-level sa­loon is now more up­mar­ket than its pre­de­ces­sor. Apart from its fresher de­sign, the Vios is also bet­ter equipped and more eco­nom­i­cal. Both the less ex­pen­sive E and range-top­ping G vari­ants have seven airbags (up from two pre­vi­ously) and Ve­hi­cle Sta­bil­ity Con­trol as stan­dard. The Vios con­tin­ues to be pow­ered by a nat­u­rally as­pi­rated 1.5-litre 4-cylin­der, but this mo­tor is now paired to a CVT (Con­tin­u­ously Vari­able Trans­mis­sion) in­stead of a 4-speed au­to­matic for im­proved fuel ef­fi­ciency.
